Portraits: The limits exist only in your mind

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

Today is the 22th December and I am so thrilled to start writing this post, since the last weeks was kind of difficult to priories my Blog. I feel now very connected to my creative process, since I started to paint my first portrait inspired by Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones).

The most interesting thing were the new techniques that I´ve been acquiring, with the diversity of paintings, that have inspired me in my artistic journey. From florals to landscapes. Including now portraits.

With each new theme that I bring into my canvas, I discover that things are not that difficult as they appear. It is really exiting!

Painting portraits was for me, at the beginning an impossible dream. I have always admired artists who are able to paint realistic human bodies or faces.

So the last months I thought…

How about to give it a try? It will be just as perfect as it can be. I will be without doubts very happy with it. It doesn´t have to be a master piece, but just my master piece.

The limits exist only in your mind...and the best thing ist that you can change it!

​​ Think about this issue, is something there in your heart, that you ever wondered if you could do it? If your answer is yes, I encourage you to make your first step! It requires discipline, internal motivation, something that really tribes you and some practice. You will see the results at the end, but don´t forget to enjoy the process. I wish I could see my face meanwhile I am painting, because sometimes I can not believe what I am painting. I loved all the process thought it!

I would love to know what would you like to try for the first time?

I am curious :-)
